SoundGarden

2012


SoundGarden is an installation that produced rainbow chard along with the sounds of the hydroponic growth process. Several handmade microphones were used including a hydrophone that broadcast the inner workings of this "plant machine". The captured sounds were reminiscent of "chirping" insects....virtual insects for an synthetic garden.

35 pounds of organic chard was harvested and donated to a local homeless shelter during this wintertime residency at the Prairie Center of the Arts in Peoria, IL.
